Legendary Pictures & Warner Bros have found their man to direct Godzilla Vs King Kong, further continuing their proposed MonsterVerse.
Adam Wingard, director of films such as The Guest, You’re Next and the upcoming Death Note adaptation, has been tapped by the heads at Warner to bring the classic behemoths together on-screen – for the first time since 1962. The crossover will be the fourth slated film in Legendary’s/WB’s shared series, which is expected to feature other fan favourites – Mothra, King Ghidorah and Rodan.
The 2020 movie will follow 2014’s Godzilla, the recently released Kong: Skull Island and the 2019 scheduled Godzilla solo sequel. There have been no further details briefed, however it is rumoured that some characters from the previously released films may show up in some capacity.
Following a successful foray in the world of horrors and thrillers, we’re hoping Wingard’s vision will bring some much-needed bite back to these classic movie monsters. The film’s comprised writer’s room include Lindsey Beer, Terry Rossio and comic book legend J. Michael Straczynski.
Meanwhile, in 2019 Michael Dougherty will direct the next solo Godzilla outing – King Of The Monsters. Which will star Kyle Chandler, Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga, and returning stars Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins.
Godzilla Vs King Kong will storm onto screens on May 22nd 2020.
